    We know that fruit is a natural complement to flowers, but fruit instead of flowers? We vote yes! Strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapples, blueberries and even a red bell pepper make up this striking piece.

    Whole peach escort cards are a clever (and not to mention easy) DIY that's perfect for the couple who's eager to add a personal touch to their wedding. Try it with apples, pears or any other stemmed fruit. If you're handwriting isn't up to the task, en-list the help of a calligrapher and really impress your guests!

    A cascade of fresh figs balance bright-pink ranunculus and dahlias, giving this simple buttercream cake an effortless look and feel. Having a naked cake? Consider adding halved figs to the unfrosted tiers—the texture makes for an amazing detail.
